Vat Exemption

What is it?

If you are disabled or have a long term illness, you won’t have to pay VAT on products that are designed or adapted for your own personal or domestic use. This includes all of Nationwide Mobility’s Walk in Showers and Walk in Baths.

How it Works

To get the VAT relief, you must have a disability or long-term illness that qualifies. For the purposes of VAT exemption, you are disabled or have a long-term illness if:

  • You have a physical or mental impairment that affects your ability to carry out everyday activities, eg blindness
  • You have a condition that’s treated as chronic sickness, like diabetes
  • You’re terminally ill

It is worth noting that, if you are elderly but able-bodied, you will not qualify. If you do meet the requirements, you will need to confirm it in writing. Our mobility advisors can help you with this if you need. To find out more visit the HMRC website.
